Features: The Ivy Jo Hunter Story by Rob Moss

Recommended Posts

Only ever seen any pictures of Ivy Jo in the last couple of years but from his name I was expecting someone built like a heavyweight boxer but looking at the pictures he looks small in stature. 

 

Strange how someones name can give a false representation of the real person.

 

Whatever Ivy Jo Hunters stature his talent was heavyweight though. :yes:

He's a great writer and producer who always deserved more attention.

I know the competition was fierce but it's sad that so many talented people were given second-class treatment at Motown.

If only there had been a powerful alternative.

Rob what a great article and story on Ivy Jo Hunter -Ivy a fantastic song writer , producer and singer - have just sat whilst reading your article listening to his amazing "See you around " and Yea ,Yea,Yea double sider from 2012 for Soul Junction Records,

Hopefully we will see more of Ivy's material soon if his unissued Motown material sees the light of day ....

Great article on one of my favourite writers

Actually spoke to Ivy on the telephone in Detroit....just looked through the local directory and took a chance on the name.....struck gold.

Brief chat about Correctone, the 45 "I remember when".....and we discussed the potential issuing of vaulted tracks (This was 1993)

Rob, what is the postion regarding copying this for other sites eg Soulful Detroit?

Thanks for this article......always singing Ivy's praises.

BTW his album was intended for release but Reel Music folded...great shame

regards
